That's Why I'm Here - James Taylor
    Person to person and man to man

    i'm back in touch with my long lost friend
    listen to reason and understand
    and think of me from way back when
    he said me and melissa well we fell out of love
    we ran out of luck seems like lightning struck
    i've been thinking of leaving but i can't raise a buck
    james i'm wondering could i borrow your truck

    i said that's why i'm here
    got no other reason
    that's why i'm standing before you
    that's why i'm here

    john's gone found dead he dies high he's brown bread
    later said to have drowned in his bed
    after the laughter the wave of the dread
    it hits us like a ton of lead
    it seems "learn not to burn" means to turn on a dime
    and walk on if you're walking even if it's an uphill climb
    and try to remember that working's no crime
    just don't let 'em take and waste your time
    that's why i'm here

    this is an iou
    i reckon' i owe you one now
    listen wendy and listen gloria
    this'll be better tomorrow

    fortune and fame's such a curious game
    perfect strangers can call you by name
    pay good money to hear fire and rain
    again and again and again
    some are like summer coming back every year
    got your baby got your blanket got your bucket of beer
    i break into a grin from ear to ear
    and suddenly it's perfectly clear
    that's why i'm here

    this is the part about kitty and bim
    he loved her and she loved him
    Wake 'em up shake 'em up the middle of the night
    got to tell me everything's alright
    he said that's why i'm here

    that's right
